in charlotte, north carolina. democrats have renominated president barack obama after a long and electrifying nomination speech by the former president, bill clinton. >> he answered the attacks last week made in tampa, and plenty of attacks of his own. >> in tampa, the republican argument against the president's re-election was actually pretty simple, pretty snappy. it went something like this, we left him a total mess. he hadn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in. now, but they did it well, they looked good, they sounded good. they convinced me that they all love their families and their children, and were grateful they had been born in america. really, i'm not -- they did. and this is important. they convinced me they were honorable people who believed what they said. we just have to make sure the american people know what those commitments are. because in order to look like an acceptable reasonable moderate alternative to president obama, they just didn't say very much about the ideas they offered over the last two years. they couldn't. because they want

popular. very powerful endorsement for president obama, another good night for them. >> affable, effective, as a democrat, it doesn't get any better. i'm sitting here, i'm giddy, i mean, this is exactly what barack obama needed. mending fences, bringing people together, understanding the facts. and i liked the way president clinton talked about the universe the republicans have painted president obama in, that they are not in reality, they are not in the real world. he even used the word "hate," and i'm glad he addressed this tonight, because you have to understand the climate before you can have the healing, and he also talked about a dysfunctional washington saying it doesn't have to be a blood sport and documented the kinds of things that he worked on with republicans and really in a roundabout way, gave the country hope that we can get together and we should be and it's a responsibility for elected officials to get to the point where they can work together. so, and, of course, he talked about philosophy, which i think is important about owning your own, you know, philosophy

"w." he was the guy riding in the car with him when barack obama went to take the oath, the guy who left him with a stock market crashing through the floor. a 4,000 point drop in a year heading toward a 7500 point drop by the following march. "w." he left the new president with a jobless number that spiked over 10% by the following year, a financial crash so bad that the republican candidate for president in 2008 asked for time out to deal with it. a calamity outmatched only by the great crash in '29. so ask it yourself, is this country better off in the direction "w" was taking us, really? we'll get to that in
